Default how to replace spark plug 07-08 zx6r

*First things first it to take off the seat...

*after seat removal you will see this. I have marked everything that needs taken apart here in the yellow...
*remove both front (2)bolts and rear tank (1 long bolt)
*unsnap both clips that are attached to the fuel pump (one red clip is on the fuel pump) (the other is the wiring that runs from the pump)

*and unbolt the cover which hides the butterflies on you air box


* hidden screw down where I am pointing
*go all the way around unscrewing the black bolts holding the lid together
* unscrew top bolt (near steering stem)
*unclip the little green clip
* to the right of airbox pop off the black fuse box connected on the side



* now take out the filter and pull (HARD) on the bottom of the airbox

* unhook the hoses will be (2 hoses one in the front and the right side) leading to the airbox



*now the fun part! getting the plugs out.
*unsnap the clips that are connecting the four plugs
*I had to bend and move the hoses and wires out of the way
* Now you have to twist and pull (Hard) to get the boots off the plugs (pointing at boots)
*now after that you just unscrew the plugs and replace them with the new *
*(ngk cr9e)
then do this process backwards to get everything back together!

Awesome write up!

You did not use any anti seize when putting new plugs on?

When pulling the airbox out it helps to loosen the allen bolts behind the frame plugs on either side of the airbox (tiny allen)... it loosens where the bottom of the airbox is...great writeup!

Im a little lost after I removed the air filter... I need to remove the whole box (the bottom part) but theres something holding it in. Could anyone put up some pictures as to exactly where those bolts are.

Much appreciated. Thanks.

on the sides on the frame there are to plugs (or caps.. whatever.. their plastic) pop those off. inside you can see a 3mm (i think its 3mm) allen head screw. dont completely remove them, just loosen. (both sides) and the airbox will pop off.
